Art Exhibit of
Artist in Residence
At the Frances Plecker Education Center at the EJC Arboretum,
from 8:00 am until 4:30 pm, weekdays.
Lynda Chandler has always incorporated gardens and nature into her life. She was taught the importance of the earth, its minerals and the plants that grew from its soils from a young age by her parents. Chandler is passionate about teaching others to see, and then to draw plants and flowers. And she loves sharing how to discover the intrinsic beauty of the plant kingdom. Her students grow in their ability to draw plants from studying their lines, forms, patterns, colors and textures. Lynda Chandler will be the first artist in relationship with the EJC Arboretum as an Artist in Residence. She will begin offering a Beginning Botanical Illustrating class in mid-July that lasts until the end of August when JMU courses begin the fall session.
